Shot in 1/2" open reel off a TV monitor by Bill Creston, this is footage of the inside of the Channel 13 studio during an actual live broadcast of video pioneers and their students in 1974. Creston began the video programs at both Cooper Union and the School of Visual Arts with his own equipment, and soon NYU added a course. The participants sit on the floor, and around the studio, as footage is shot, and the technicians struggle to broadcast both the event, and portions of the artists' videos, too. It's a wild scene of mishaps, conversation and interviews as the moderator attempts to produce a coherent show live on air. At last the technicians decide to screen the artists videos on monitors in the studio, point their cameras at those monitors, and broadcast that way. Shown on screen are Carl Methfessel, Bill Creston, Jackie Cassen, Video Free America and People's Video Theater (PLEASE WATCH TAPE TO HEAR OTHER NAMES).
